because of romney's perceived victory. and the common belief that if obama care goes right out the window when day one of the new presidency, it's good for big pharma and for health maintenance organizations. to which i say sorry. that is very wrong. in truth, big pharma and the hmos are gigantic winners off obama care. they made their peace with it. they profited from it. some would say they co-opted it. that's why i warned on twitter not to get too caught up in the benefits of a possible obama care repeal. it may not be as bountiful as you wish them to be. you spmay have to sell the stoc that people bought today. obama care is so fabulous for big pharma and health care. sorry. finally, i tweeted one last tweet. under no circumstances regardless who have wins should you buy hewlett-packard. the bottom line on the debate, you can speculate on romney win after last night and adjust your portfolio accordingly. if you buy stocks with declining fundamentals simply because you think they'll get a boost from romney or obama, you're taking on an unacceptable level of risk. buy good stocks cheapl
